Rob, I'd be interested. My guess is I'm about an hour or so away.

Dang, I forgot - if yer not a Bergen County resident the only issue will be parking at the range - ya gotta have a Bergen Count Parks Permit for yer car (not for you) ...
"The archery range at Campgaw Mountain is open year-round from 10:00 a.m. until dusk. Bergen County residents must present their county registration card, which costs $12 for family membership. Non-residents need to purchase a $40.00 permit in order to use the archery range. The registration card and permit can be obtained through the Bergen County Parks Department by calling (201) 336-7275."
I get my yearly permit via mail, or at the Darlington Campgaw registration office right next door to the archery range.
Campgaw Mountain Reservation Campgaw Road, Mahwah (201) 327-3500 As a 1,300 acre wooded area, Campgaw features hiking trails, camping, a 28 station field archery range and a concession-operated ski center, including eight trails, four lifts, 100% snowmaking, lessons, rentals and more.

As for the permit to shoot at the range, i used to shoot there everyday with a bergen county cops sitting in the parking lot with no issues! dont like to break the rules but i wasnt aware of any costs to shoot there.i will be interested int he soot when it happens!
